Have you checked the QSYSOPR messages or the message queue that is
associated with the printer device description?  Do you print other
overlay print files on the printer? And also, is the printfile compiled
with DEVTYPE(*AFPDS)?  These are the first things that came to mind.

> I am having a problem getting an overlay to print from the AS400.
> I created the overlay using Elixir - Design Pro Tools software.  You
> design the overlay on a PC.  Save it to .ove. Upload it to the AS400.
> Convert it to .ovl.
> I used True Type Arial fonts for the text.  I converted the fonts to AFP.
> Example Arial 9 converted to COAR09NP.300.
> I uploaded the fonts to the AS400.  Converted them to *FNTRSC and placed
> them in QAFPR library.
> My problem is when I try to print the spoolfile that uses the overlay it
> goes right back on hold.
> Since there is no job log for the printer I can't figure out what it
> doesn't like.
> Any help will be greatly appreciated.
